The EU-funded Ens4Care project has developed five guidelines for European nurses and social workers on how to use eHealth for promoting a healthy lifestyle and prevention, clinical practice, skills development for advanced roles, integrated care and nurse ePrescribing. 

The 2-year-project, that was launched in December 2013, funded by the EU and coordinated by the European Federation of Nurses Associations (EFN) together with 24 partners from all over Europe, including a mix of different professional associations in nursing and social care, nursing regulators and unions, informal carers, patients, researchers and research communities, civil society representatives and industry. They have collected a total of 122 existing good practices of using eHealth tools by nurses and social workers at both national and regional levels, with aim to inform not only the health and care sector, but also policy-makers.
